Today, Sony announced they will be changing the free game line-up for PS Plus members. They’ll be dropping PS3 and PS Vita titles on March 8th, 2019, a full year away. The company stated it will now “focus on PS4 titles” for PS Plus subscribers.
Also stated in the blog post, Sony stated this change “won’t affect any games you’ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019. Those games will still be part of your PS Plus games library as long as you remain a member. Your game saves and other benefits of PS Plus will also remain the same.”
It’s no surprise Sony is finally dropping PS3 and Vita games, since the PS4 was launched a little over 5 years ago and no company makes titles for the PS3. According to Sony, “Many of our fans are playing on the PS4 platform, with the increasingly vast number of PS4s in homes around the world.” With over 70 million PS4’s in homes around the world, it’s an obvious choice.
This announcement came at the same time the free PS plus games for March were revealed.
